This work provides a detailed review of recent developments in the field of AdS/CFT correspondence for a particular subject of the correspondence between type IIB superstring on AdS5 x S5 and the N = 4 super Yang–Mills theory. Through analyzing the bound states of Bethe roots for the corresponding PSU(2,2|4) spin chain, it is shown how the lattice system of functional equations, called Y-system, appears.
